in boulogne-billancourt, france, which officially opened to the public on september 12, 2011. french practice 1024 architecture
has completed the ephemeral structure nestled within an extensive garden provides elevated views of the seine river and
surrounding vegetation. after its two year lifespan, the delicate framework will be disassembled and removed without leaving
a trace of its existence.

guests enter the interior and outdoor terrace dining areas through an open-air staircase or through the red
elevator tower. steel tubes arranged and connected similar to construction scaffolding support and encase
an elongated rectangular wooden volume. a translucent glass facade encompasses the outer shell and becomes
a glowing lantern at night.
